– Reba McEntire will develop "Reba's Place," a restaurant, bar, live music venue and retail store set to open in Atoka, Okla. in 2022, she announced on Friday.
Constructed in a century old Masonic Temple, "Reba's Place" features two stories of dining space that opens up to a central stage which will regularly host live music performances. The aesthetics of the venue will be heavily influenced by McEntire's western heritage and include a curated collection of memorabilia from her personal archives. Reba's Place is created in partnership with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and the city of Atoka.
"I'm very excited to be opening a place so close to my roots," said McEntire. "The Choctaw Nation and the city of Atoka are wonderful partners, and I can't wait to welcome our first guests to Reba's Place. We are working very hard to create something not only for the local community, but that will also braing in folks from across the country."
The menu will feature tacos, chicken fried steak and pinto beans and corn bread along with versions of many of the dishes most popular in the region and favorites from other areas including Nashville, New Orleans and Mexico.
The main floor also showcases a restored antique bar that is more than 100 years old and offers a broad range of beer, wine and spirits.
